I attended an all day Resources Management Team meeting at the Old Town Hall in Stratford. The main items were the Corporate Plan, the Staff Survey and next year's budget.

The proposed programme of work in response to the Staff Survey was due to be discussed with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor tomorrow, with actions grouped under 6 themes. Karen Lawlor is to co-ordinate the programme for the Resources Directorate; I have asked the ICT Staff Council to appoint someone to work with Karen on behalf of ICT.

The Survey results were mixed, with highlights around role clarity, team working, customer service, line management and appraisals but, disappointingly, lowlights included management of change and leadership.
